What Makes Chocolate Truffles Different?
In the strictest sense, this is not a traditional truffle. A truffle usually is something that has a chocolate ganache in the center with a chocolate coating, powder, or nuts. however, the chocolate truffle has evolved with time, and the word can be held a bit more loosely. These chocolate avocado truffles are silky, creamy, and oooo so good.
Sugar Free Chocolate Truffles
The thing that often ruins a good chocolate truffle is the infamous amounts of sugar the assail the little round goodies. Sugar can have a devastating effect on our health. The sugar epidemic is more dangerous than we realize, especially as we consider that sugar is often used as a preservative in foods that are not typically a dessert. Packaged foods like crackers, tomato sauce, or ketchup are filled with copious amounts of sugar that lower our immune system and add inches to our waistlines.
Enjoying a treat is still possible though! A treat like these avocado truffles are still extremely delicious. Using botanically sweetened ingredients can replace the harmful sugar and we can still get our sweet fix!
Replacing Instead of Eliminating
Replacing ingredients like chocolate chips with a botanically sweetened chocolate chip can dramatically increase our health and wellness. Instead of using sugar-laden chocolate chips, grab some Lily's botanically sweetened chocolate chips.
I often hear that the desserts don't taste the same when using 'better' for your products. Give it another chance. An apple and an orange do not taste the same, but they are equally as good. In the same way, a 'better for you' dessert is not the same as its unhealthy counterpart, but only because it is a different dessert! Give it a chance, and don't compare to other desserts. Judge it by its flavors alone.
These avocado truffles are not going to disappoint though! Because of the avocado, this sugar-free chocolate truffle is going to be creamy and delightful!

Is there Sugar Free Chocolate Chips?
There certainly is sugar-free chocolate chips, which is exactly what I use in these sugar-free chocolate avocado truffles! But sugar-free chocolate chips are not all equally made.
Have you ever eaten a sugar-free candy and immediately received a stomachache for your efforts? You discovered the ingredients called inulin. This little ingredient can cause terrible stomach bloating, discomfort, and possibly a few extra trips to the restroom.
What is the Best Sugar Free Chocolate?
I have two favorite sugar-free chocolate options. Both are great options if you are living the keto or Trim Healthy Mama lifestyle. However, they have some distinct differences that may make one or the other better for you.
Lily's Chocolate Chips - Runner up!
This recipe uses white chocolate chips from Lily's Chocolate. I remember the exact place I bought my first bar of Lily's chocolate. Eagerly I purchased just one candy bar, figuring that it would last me a while. Nope. I got in the car, unwrapped a slice, and proceeded to eat the entire delicious botanically sweetened bar.
How many net carbs are in Lily's chocolate?
You can find more information about Lily's Chocolate and the keto lifestyle on their website. But they claim to have 3g of net carbs per serving or less.
For those on the Trim Healthy Mama lifestyle, their chocolate bars are still all going to be in the 'E' territory.
The Ultimate Chocolate Chips from Trim Healthy Mama
As much as I do enjoy Lily's chocolate, Lily's does have both inulin and dextrose in many of their chocolates. Both of these ingredients can cause stomach discomfort for some people. Personally, I do not have stomach issues, but many others I talk to have.
If you have stomach discomfort with inulin chocolate chips, I suggest superior sugar-free chocolate from Trim Healthy Mama. These chocolate chips are truly the 'ultimate' sugar-free chocolate. You won't find a purer botanically sweetened chocolate on the market.
